CB Jerraud Powers could fill in at nickel and slot until CB Tyrann Mathieu (knee) returns.

ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss doesn't believe Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson will hold out for a new contract this offseason, as he heads into his fourth and final year of his rookie contract. Peterson said his representatives haven't heard back from the team yet about a new deal. However, Weinfuss says Peterson told him he loves playing football and doesn't like to be away from the field, which means he'd be unlikely to hold out and miss training camp time. Peterson can always play another season and approach a contract extension before the 2015 season, too.
Tue, 04 Feb 2014 18:39:38 -0800
Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson is not ruling out the possibility of holding out if he does not receive a new contract this offseason. "I can't speak on that right now," Peterson said. "Me and my agent, we haven't talked about some of those possibilities. But hopefully we can get something done. If something were to happen, we restructure my deal or anything like that, we'll have to wait and see what happens."
Fri, 31 Jan 2014 18:19:58 -0800

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 11:37:04 -0800
Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson doesn't believe that WR Michael Crabtree is 100 percent healthy after coming off his torn Achilles' tendon, even though Crabtree had 102 yards receiving in Week 16. "He's slowly getting back into the groove, like he's trying to get back in game shape, get back moving the way he used to," Peterson said. "You can tell he doesn't look as comfortable as he did when he was healthy. That's going to come with time." Crabtree had five catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns against Peterson in the first time the two teams faced off last season, and he had eight catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the second matchup in 2012.
Fantasy Tip: Crabtree isn't at top speed yet, but that doesn't mean he can't or won't be effective. The prior success against Peterson is a plus, but an back-to-back 100-yard effort is probably unlikely. Consider Crabtree more of a WR3 or flex in Week 17.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts was targeted just once until the final four minutes in the Week 11 game against the Arizona Cardinals, as he was shadowed by CB Patrick Peterson. Shorts was clearly frustrated. "There was opportunities throughout the game I should have been involved in," Shorts said Sunday, Nov. 17. "But, you know, it is what it is. I can't control what the...we can do better as an offense."
Sat, 09 Nov 2013 09:19:26 -0800

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 09:58:37 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson will be covered by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Week 2. Johnson had 10 grabs for 121 yards but didn't find the end zone last season against Peterson and the Cardinals. Peterson said he is just focused on limited Johnson from big plays. Johnson had only four catches for 37 yards in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said Peterson won't be left one-on-one all day against Johnson.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson is one of the better cover corners in the NFL, but the matchup against Megatron shouldn't scare you away from starting Johnson. If last year was any indication, Johnson could easily triumph in the matchup.

That said, coach Bruce Arians said Peterson will be on the field every the other team is punting. "(Patrick) can't get his hands on the ball enough for me," Arians said. "As long as the other team is punting, he's going to be back there. And hopefully they will be punting a lot."

"Oh, he's going to have parameters," Jones proclaimed. "They'll all have parameters. You put your toes on the yard line that we decide. … But you can't second guess them because if you do, then you take the aggressiveness away from them. We want aggressiveness. As long as he's got good catch procedures, which he's shown, we'll live with some things. But he'll have parameters set on what he's got to do."

"But I believe we have a pretty good game plan, and I think we'll be ready for whatever those guys throw at us on Sunday." Peterson expects plenty of contact at the line of scrimmage between himself and Johnson.
Thu, 13 Dec 2012 06:50:59 -0800

The Arizona Cardinals have plenty of depth at the cornerback position, so it will be interesting to see who stays and who goes. CB Patrick Peterson is an unquestioned starter, but it is uncertain who will start opposite him. CB William Gay is considered a good fit to replace CB Richard Marshall (Dolphins) in the hybrid/cornerback role. That leaves CB Michael Adams, Jamell Fleming, A.J. Jefferson and Greg Toler to duke it out for a meaningful role.
Wed, 20 Jun 2012 20:07:41 -0700
